On quite possibly the most gorgeous fall night in October, Rosecrest Special Events hosted a supper club and house concert for 60 people featuring an Oktoberfest beer garden, gourmet German food and music by the exceptional Jeffrey Foucault. http://www.jeffreyfoucault.com.
This was one of those nights that just got better and better. The assorted German beer was perfect for our balmy East Bay night; the more than 100 candles and paper lanterns flickered beautifully as darkness descended; and the menu – bratwurst, knockwurst, potato leek tart, roasted carrots and green beans, German potato salad, spaetzle and fresh homemade pretzels – was delicious. To top off the extremely boisterous beer garden and fun of eating under the stars, the guests were moved into the living room where they were treated to Black Forest Cake, apple struedel, lots of wine, and two sets performed by Jeffrey Foucault.
The New Yorker was generous in its praise of Jeffrey and his latest work: “An album full of gravelly, gorgeously rolling poems about weather, trains, and love. Foucault pronounces his last name “Folk-alt,” which sounds something like one of those inadequate names given to the acoustic-guitar-driven musical genre of which he is an exceptional practitioner.” His voice, his music – well, it literally rocked the souls of the entire crowd at this intimate house concert.
I’m really serious folks – this was such a totally fabulous party. You have got to try this in your own home!
